Charter for Compassion

Commit to nonviolence, peacemaking and cruelty-free living. Commit to compassion: Charter for Compassion. When Karen Armstrong won the Ted Prize in 2008, she was granted funding for "one wish to change the world." Her wish was for compassion, and the Charter for Compassion just launched Nov. 12 as a project to create a "cooperative effort to restore not only compassionate thinking but, more importantly, compassionate action to the center of religious, moral and political life."

Check out the site and join the list of people who affirm the charter.
